DAMN, that motor already looks 20 times better than when you started. It is going to look amazing in that car. I can't wait to see it in there.

Can you enlighten me on the 22r in the '74, did you need to mod the front crossmsmber? how about the tranny crossmember for the 5speed?

One can modify the crossmember or modify the brackets on the engine. You need a midsump pan to do the install. The 5 Speed W50 transmission mints up In the 74 with no mods if you use the original 74 tranny crossmember.

Are you meaning the original tranny crossmember from a'74 GT? So it already had a 5speed? Does the 4speed crossmember work?

How do the mods to the engine crossmember done?

And will a mid sump pan only come from a 75 - or any 77-81 (20R) car?

Thanks for the advice and I love your work - very nice.

Image

And the radiator re-cored and painted....
Image

Got the new corner lenses, washer bottle and pump, radiator catch bottle and rear view mirrow but didn't get pics of that stuff. My Konig rewinds should show up tomorrow....can't wait to get the new wheels and tires on it.

Feels like Christmas...What did the man in brown bring today?

Well I went over to Crash's house and we finally accomplished a major feet. Yes after 8 years the Celica finally has a motor in it again. He had to get a different pan for it, but once that was on there it went in without a hitch.

After we got the motor in we bolted the hood back on, which hasn't been there in years as well.

Image

Now it goes off to paint and will come back super gorgeous.

Got it back from the bodyshop. decided i didn't have the nutz to drop $4k on paint. so now it's been blocked and re-primed and i am starting re-assembly to get it running and driving. looking at going back to paint next summer or fall as $ allows. just want to get this thing running and driving.

I had it at Mansfield paint and body. They do good work and didn't charge much for the blocking and priming but I felt they were too high on the paint.

Here's the rewinds mounted. still considerable fender gap there that needs to be addressed. Car still has Factory springs.

was off work the last week so I spent a lot of time in the garage with the celicaa. I managed to get the front valance wet sanded and primed and pinned on. Then I got the rest of the front tned buttoned up and adjusted along with installing the corner lamps, grill and trimm filler panels were sanded, priimed and painted. Rear bumper, tail lamps trim etc. is on and I've moved on to re-gluing the front and rear edges of the headliner. Next i need to re-glue the sided of the headliner and re-cover the a-pillars then the front and rear glass can go in.

got the clutch working and the choke cable hooked up as well as new rotors and calipers and pads installed. brake lines are all hooked up so now i just need to reconnect the reservoir hoses and bleed the system and that should take care of stopping duties. I'll get some pics up this week.

front end of the car is up on stands right now. Started to work on the brakes last night but could not get them to bleed. New calipers installed but using my vacuum brake bleeder I could get no fluid to come through the bleeds. Not sure what's going on there.
